I have a range sett up on the ranch. Steel every hundred yards to 1000,then 1250, 1500 and 1760. T-posts set 4 foot apart with chain between them. Gongs hang from chain or firehose from the crosschain. Notched 2x4 spreader between the posts
I’ve been collecting tires and just started to build my backdrop. Plan is to stack tires in semi circular pattern and fill in with dirt and rebar. I just want a place to sight in without killing the neighbors cows.
At my house, I have 175yds from my back porch to the base of my woods. There I have Railroad ties set in a wide V with dirt filling up to about 5ft. I'd like to move that set just into my woods and make the berm more like 7-10ft.
At my dads farm (1/4 mile down the road), set on the corner of his field I made a berm out of old tires with t-posts and fill and surrounded by dirt. This berm is about 5-6ft tall. Behind this berm is a 10 acre woods and 1.5miles before you hit any other home (google maps).
How big are you guys making your berms? I work at a tree service, so I also planning on bringing a big load of logs to help reinforce the back and cut down on the amount of dirt I need.
